Section Information for Spring 2018
This course considers the development of Europe and Europeans, and their exchanges with neighboring cultures. More than that, it introduces a method of historical study focused on the intelligent reconstruction of the thoughts, emotions and deeds of the people who built the civilization from which our own is derived. Using images and primary source texts, we will devote considerable attention to peering into the minds of men and women often far removed from us in time and space, in the hope of understanding not only our own roots but also in the hope of appreciating alternative paths. Intellectual curiosity is the only prerequisite for this course.
Satisfies the general education requirement in Western civilization/world history.
